A relaxing environment to discover the premium wines, it also offers a selection of house made produce available for sale. Private tours and tastings can be arranged in advance. Open 10am-5pm daily.

The Food

A gorgeous stone fire-place makes for cosy dining in winter, while in summer, a picnic blanket in the gardens makes for a blissful lunch setting.

Cullen Wines was established by Diana and Kevin Cullen who began experimenting with viticulture in 1966 following various research reports that suggested Margaret River’s climate was similar to that of Bordeaux.

The Wines

The wines are estate-grown from Cullen Wines’ two A Grade Biodynamic (BFA) certified vineyards in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. The philosophy is to search for the best quality expression of the vineyard in the wine. Quality is paramount, and every winemaking step reflects Cullen Wines’ approach to do whatever it takes to make the most outstanding wines. Cabernet Sauvignon (and blends) and Chardonnay are the focus.

Description

Forest Hill has an interesting pioneer history and was once owned by the Holmes a Court family of Vasse Felix in Margaret River. In 1996 the vineyards were bought by the Lyons family, the current owners and old farming family from the Great Southern. The winery and cellar door were established in 2004 and the fine-dining restaurant, Pepper and Salt, is a popular wedding destination and from its elevated position has commanding views of the valley and estate vineyards.

 

The Wines:

The vineyard at Forest Hill winery was the site of the first grape plantings in the Great Southern in 1965, making it one of the oldest operating wineries in Western Australia.  The first vintage, a cabernet and a riesling, was released in 1972.  The cabernet was made by Jack Mann at Houghton Winery in the Swan Valley and the riesling by his son Dorham, at Sandalford.   

Today the wines are made by Guy Lyons and Liam Carmody.  There are 14 wines made at Forest Hill which include riesling, sauvignon blanc, gewurtztraminer, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and Malbec.

The Block Series wines are sourced from old dry-grown vineyards, and the riesling is often the recipient of medals and trophies at wineshows around the country.

 

Wine Tasting:

Positioned beneath the Pepper and Salt restaurant, and built into a stone cellar, the cellar door is open Thursday through Sunday 10.30am - 5pm. 

 

Unique Highlights:

Picturesque setting, dramatic backdrop of Karri trees, fine dining restaurant, exceptional cool-climate wines.

  • Winemaker:Sasha Foley

Description

Owners Sasha and Ben McDonald refer to the southern Karridale sub-region as the ‘cooler sister’ to the rest of the Margaret River cape. Their winery brings this cool to life in both the style of its wines and the estate vibe. Ben is the fifth generation on the McDonald family farm. He single-handedly planted the 6-acre vineyard when aged 19 and has continued to evolve his family farm since. In addition to vines, the property has over 270 fruit trees, several vegetable gardens and a few thousand sheep.

The property follows sustainable farming practices to encourage a healthy eco-system, with all elements coexisting to improve the overall heartbeat of the farm. Sheep graze among the vines for six months after harvest to control the weeds and add nutrients into the cycle. Bug pressure is taken care of by guinea fowls and chickens.

The Wines
The wines are handmade with an intuitive, hands-off approach and every parcel of fruit is managed individually through the winemaking process. Natural yeasts are used for authentic, characterful wines. Often their trusty old basket press is used, making for a true artisanal feel. Alongside Margaret River signature varieties, check out the intriguing Fumé Blanc, Rosé and Vintage Port.

Wine Tasting
The pair converted their grandfather’s timber shed into a tasting room which is open daily from 10am – 5pm Thursday to Monday to taste their wines. Tuesday and Wednesday tastings by appointment.

The Food
A range of tasting plates, bursting with tasty interpretations of the farm’s fresh-picked seasonal produce, incredible grass-fed lamb and whatever seafood has been caught off the shores of Augusta by their sea mates. Vegetarian and dietary options are catered for.

Unique Highlights

Ashley is very conscious of soil health and the vineyard is managed with a minimal intervention ethos, creating fruit with great flavour. All grapes are handpicked and basket pressed, with all wines made on the property by Ashley and consultant winemaker, Vanessa Carson. Various different wine making techniques are used including the use of Amphora pots for fermentation, cold soaking on skins and the addition of whole bunches to ferments.

There is a cellar door cafe on the property serving sharing style grazing platters showcasing local produce. The focal point of the cellar door is the grand green door, imported from Fez, Morocco. The Moorish theme of the winery and cafe menu matches the predominantly Spanish/European characteristics of the wines.

Family-owned Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River wine region, is under the stewardship of three generations, who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world's finest. 

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 "Art Series" Chardonnay. The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award-winning restaurant, cellar door and art gallery. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.

Held annually in February and March, visit the Leeuwin Estate website for ticket information.

Description

The winery was started by brothers Murray and Iain Montgomery - both have always had a passion for good wine, which led them with their wives to develop the Kalgan property and the rammed-earth cellar door facility.

In a new chapter, new owners Phil and Michelle have big plans for Montgomerys! They are in the process of redeveloping the cellar door to be a tavern - which will have one of the best outlooks in the Great Southern! Along with food sourced locally it will also feature local wines and beers and offer something for every palate.

RAYMOND WILLIAMS;  VITICULTURIST


Ray commenced his career at Goundreys in Mount Barker where he became responsible for the entire estate vineyards. Subsequently, with significant knowledge of the climate and soils of the Great Southern, he established his own viticultural consultancy and now manages a number of independent vineyards including Montgomery’s Hill which he helped plan and establish.

QUALITY CONTROL


Ray Williams runs a very strict operation as far as the total wellbeing of the vineyard is concerned. The Cellar door and storage area was built away from the vineyard on Ray Williams’ advice to keep the public away from the vines for prevention of disease reasons. Montgomery’s Hill vineyard is quite idyllically situated with the closest vineyard being 10km from it. Consultants are employed during the winemaking process to ensure a quality product is produced from the excellent fruit grown at Montgomery’s Hill.

ALBANY GREAT SOUTHERN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA


Early explorer, T.B Wilson MD Surgeon RN came up the Kalgan River in a longboat during an 1834-35 expedition exploring the hinterland around the settlement of Albany . He wrote in his journal about the area which now comprises Montgomery’s Hill vineyard “this would be the place to grow the vine”.

The vines were planted in 1996 and have produced some excellent wines that have won numerous medals, including the 2007 Wine Wise Chardonnay trophy for the best wine under 300 tonne production in Australia.

The cellar sales outlet is open daily from 11am to 5pm (Winter months June to August 12noon to 4pm). Cheese platters are available and can be enjoyed with a glass whilst sitting on the verandah enjoying the view.
